What is the point of having a usb 3.1 interface, or mentioning its theoretical speed of 10 Gbps, when internally it can only handle sata 3 drives at best, which theoretical maximum speed is lower than usb 3.0?

most usb 3.0 5gbps sata->usb can't actually give you 5gbps, the usb 3.1 10gbps tend to be faster

Got one of these , fit perfect in a Samsung curved TV, I fitted inside a £5 120gb SSD

USB 3.0 net transfer rate: 4Gbps (500MB/s)

SATA 3 net transfer rate: 5Gbps (600MB/s)

How did you come to conclusion that USB 3.0 is faster than SATA 3?

This is a why a USB 3.1 Gen 2 '10Gbps' (net 9.7Gbps) interface is still faster when backing a SATA interface as it allows for a full 5Gbps backend which 3.0/Gen1 USB interfaces can't provide.

How did I come to my conclusion? It is easy, because you are wrong.

SATA 3 has a maximum throughput of 4.8Gbps (600 MBps).

USB 3.0 has a maximum throughput of 5Gbps (625 Mbps).

The fastest SATA 3 drive is generally considered to be the Samsung 860 EVO, which max out at c560 Mbps. At about £140 per TB, I would expect not many, if any here would buy/have one and stick it in this enclosure, which is just as well*. But hey if you are happy to fall for meaningless sales pitch and get sold by some blurbs about a 10 Gbps max i/f for a SATA enclosure, be my guest!

* because anyone who can do with some speed and has some sense, would have avoided SATA altogether, bought a NVMe SSD e.g., and stick it in a NVMe USB 3.1 or Thunderbolt enclosure.

You don't understand the interface standards I'm afraid.

USB 3.0 has an interface speed of 5Gbps, but this is gross before encoding losses. USB 3.0 uses an 8b/10b encoding standard which means 20% of the interface link is lost. The net byte rate after encoding is 4Gbps, or 500MB/s. The wikipedia article you linked even says this.

On the other hand SATA 3 has a gross link of 6Gbps but SATA 3 also uses 8b/10b encoding so loses 20% of it's speed by the time you reach the byte output. This means SATA 3 can actually transfer 4.8Gbps (or 600MB/s) of actual useful data. Again the wikipedia link you shared will tell you this too.

Next time you may want to read the links you post!
There's no mention of UASP support, but having USB3.1 type C interface you would think it be stated in ad, no?
